I very much like book illustration that well complements the story. I think of artists like Sidney Paget (Sherlock Holmes), Ernest Shepard (Pooh, and The Wind in the Willows), Alan Lee (The Lord of the Rings), Pauline Baynes (The Chronicles of Narnia), Beatrix Potter (The Tale of Peter Rabbit, etc.), but my favorite illustrator is N.C. Wyeth (Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and many more). This N.C. Wyeth is from Stevenson's Kidnapped: will David Balfour survive "The Wreck of the 'Covenant'"?
